Shams-i Qamari.. :)

February 20, 2009


“The moon came to me last night
With a sweet question.

She said,

‘The sun has been my faithful lover
For millions of years.

Whenever I offer my body to him
Brilliant light pours from his heart.

Thousands then notice my happiness
And delight in pointing
Toward my beauty.

Is it true that our destiny
Is to turn into Light

And I replied,

Dear moon,
Now that your love is maturing,
We need to sit together
Close like this more often

So I might instruct you
How to become
Who you
~ Khwajeh Shams ad-Din Muhammad ‘Hafiz’-e Shirazi (Faithful Lover)

The seperation… has led to only the greatest realization! The physical seperation has only been created to show us the path to the spiritual union. What else is this life if not the beautiful path adorned with gardens, golds, and waters, pointing us to the Divine, to the Creator of all, Sustainer of all, the One and only who can gratify all desires. Nothing is without Him, nothing will be without Him, He is the Giver, and the Taker. Only He.

Do not seek other than Him, you will only end up with dust…
